Stranger Danger!! The Youkilis Monster invades Keith's Mind. Keith @ Spencer

(Lego Youkilis)

As pace-setter, Keither stopped by Oregon for some AL action.

Game 1 Jon Lester @ Danny Haren

Back and forth game the entire time a there were six lead changes. Keith led 7-6 going into the bottom of the 9th. Adam Jones singled and advanced to second on a slow roller. With 2 outs, pinch-hitter Derek Jeter singled home the tying run and we head to extras.....where BJ Upton led off with a double and The Youkilis Monster smack a GW-3B for the win. SPENCER WINS 8-7 in 10 innings.

W - Jason Berkken 3.1, 2r, 4h, 2k,

L - Andrew Bailey 1.1, 2er, k, 4h

Game 2 Fast Fausto Carmona @ Jeff Neimann

Score was tied 5-5 in the 6th until BJ Upton led off the 6th with a single. Stole second. Stole 3rd. Then scored on a Escobar single. Derek Jeter with yet another pinch hit RBI single in the 7th made it 7-4 Spencer. Keith scored two more in the 8th on a Vic Martinez double to make it close, but Spencer scored three in the bottom of the 8th to close out the game. SPENCER WINS 10-6

W - Matt Guerrier 1.0, 2h

L - Matt Capps, 5h, 2er, w

Game 3 Max "Headroom" Scherzer @ Clifford "Big Red Dog" Lee

A RBI single from Yunel Escobar in the 1st put Spencer up 1-0. It was 2-0 Spencer after Nick Markakis' RBI-single in the 5th. However Keith managed to score two off of Cliff Lee to tie in the 8th and a Delmon Young (batting clean-up) single off of Scott Downs in the 9th won it for Keither. KEITH WINS 3-2

W - Alexi Ogando - 1.0, k

L - Scott Downs - 1.1, 2h, r

S - Bailey - 1.0, k

Another good series. Why I took Cliff Lee out in that game, I have no idea. I'm blaming the many Smithwick's in my blood for the bad pitching moves.
